We’re a multi award-winning team expanding the online bookable campsite and holiday park market where only 30% are bookable online. And we want another expert to join us.
We are seeking a Lead Engineer to join the business to help extend and support the technical estate that underpins this growing, dynamic business . We have lots of exciting projects on the horizon, including replacing our existing site, the inclusion of campervan and motorhome hire in our roster of rental possibilities, a cloud migration and supplier portal changes, amongst many others. We are looking for someone to own, shape and execute some of these projects with colleagues inside the Engineering team.
Pitchup.com is the market leading online booking site for campsites and caravan parks, with over 4,000 sites available in 65 countries, including the USA, and plans for further global expansion.
More Brits go camping and caravanning than holiday in Spain and Greece combined, and the market is booming as Brits switch to domestic holidays. Now, we're expanding into Europe and further afield.
A member of the Financial Times' FT1000 fastest growing companies in Europe, Pitchup.com receives up to 300,000 visits and 6,500 bookings per day. The company is profitable and was founded in 2009 by former lastminute.com staff with a background in the holiday park sector.
We’re currently working from home and are a lively friendly team with bags of experience. We want someone similar to join us – is that you?
